Every time I see a ready assembled vegetable platter at a grocery store, just to pick up and go to a party, I cringe at its cost. I think it mostly reflects the price of labor, rather than the value of the veggies.
It doesn’t take a culinary genius to cut up raw vegetables, and to arrange them on a platter.
Broccoli is not the most popular vegetable, being part of the cabbage family, but it is very rich in vitamin C, and a great source of fiber. It is great cooked, steamed, or served raw in salads, or with dips.
